After reboot internet connection falls to nothing, with any browser, after browsing 4 or 5 pages. I know im not working offline, Im using xp home, dsl, speedstream modem. Nothing I have tried has worked for this computer. I changed computers and started using my laptop, and everything works perfectly. One strange thing happens on the other computer though. I cant connect with any browser to any site, but mirc can still retain a connection and download files. It reeks of a virus but my program cant find one, and ive used spybot and adaware and it still remains a problem. hope this is posted to the right forum, im new. thanks.
